Hell Gate

Hell Gate
(Statute Mile 602, Georgia ICW)
The Problem:Hell Gate was dredged during the summer of 2009, and for a time all was well. HOWEVER, reports running through the spring of 2014, indicate that shoaling has reappeared here, particularly along the edges of the channel. One report places depths near marker #87 as little as 4 1/2 feet, but most report MLW soundings of around 5 feet. Undoubtedly, without dredging, things will continue to deteriorate as time progresses!
The Solution: Time your passage through Hell Gate for mid to high tide
